My Time to Craft Challenge #240 - Mother's Day (or cards for a special lady)

Hi there - so happy that you've popped in to visit me today.  I have some exciting news that was announced last week...the lovely ladies at My Time to Craft Challenge Blog asked me to stay on as a permanent DT member.  I can't start full-time until September but I'm SO EXCITED to be part of this team.

This week for MTTC #240 we'd like you to make a Mother's Day card - or a card for a special lady
I chose to make a Mother's Day card - take a look:
I am lovin' this woodgrain stamp (it's so realistic looking)!  I used a die cut to make the hole in the tree for the owl to peek out of.  I took the piece I cut out and put it behind the main panel to continue the wood look.  Then I used a sponge dauber to make it look a bit darker from the inside.  Pretty CAS and sweet. I think my Mom will like it :o)

The lovely ladies at MTTC have made some wonderful creations for your inspiration this week. Please pop on over and say "hi" to them (here).  I hope you will decide to join in the fun this week. I can't wait to see what you make!

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #186 - No Patterned Paper
Papertake Weekly - for Mum (or a Girlie)

Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D

  5. You've got a great wood grain stamp, and I agree with you, it sure looks realistic! I don't know what it is about owls, but I never seem to get tired of them. Perhaps because they can be used for so many different occasions.
    You've made a lovely card for you mum!

  6. the hole on the wood grain looks so real :) I am amazed by this , a very sweet card

  7. This is super the owl and the paper looks so much like wood. Great job. Thanks for playing our No Pattern Paper challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. Awesome!
